Garry St. Jean, a former Sacramento Kings coach and Golden State Warriors general manager, joined “The Drive Guys” ahead of Tuesday’s play-in matchup between his two former teams.

While the Kings came up short in last year’s seven-game series against the Warriors, St. Jean believes if De’Aaron Fox sees a couple of his three-point shots fall, he’ll feel comfortable, which could be deadly for the Warriors.

“He is a unique, special, terrific player,” St. Jean said. “I think his first priority is going to be to attack the paint, he’s as good as anybody in the business doing that.”

For the 2023-24 season, De’Aaron Fox averaged 26.6 points, 5.6 assists and 4.6 rebounds.

Additional topics discussed include:

  • How far the Sacramento franchise has come in less than a year
  • Which matchups will be the most interesting to watch
  • Klay Thompson is probably playing his best basketball right now
  • The comparisons between Mike Brown and Steve Kerr
  • How Draymond Green has been impactful since returning from his most recent suspension
  • What is the best way to guard Stephen Curry?
  • His best memories with both organizations
